    I need a bit of help on figuring out my options.
    I am looking for a semi auto for concealed carry both IWB and OWB.
    Right now I have a Glock 26, XD40 (which stays bedside) and Kahr p380 so would like to stay in the 9mm, 40 or 380 calibers.

    A few features I would like are:
    1. The smaller the gun the better due to my work dress code
    2. no external thumb safety
    3. 9mm, .40 or 380 caliber
    4. Min of 7+1 capacity

    I have no problem with polymer frames, stainless, blued...etc.
    Double action only or first shot is not a problem.

    This will be mixed into the carry rotation with my 380, which is my pocket carry gun, and my Glock 26 that carries IWB/OWB.
    Thanks!

    S&W Shield 40. You have the CC well covered in 380 and 9mm. I don't know why you would want another carry gun when you already have two pretty good options.

    +2 for the shield. I have the shield 40 as well. It DOES have an external thumb safety, but I don't use it. Another option is the Kahr cw9/40. Both are good guns with not external safety.

    Can never have enough for cc :)
    Shield is one i do want to try, even though it has a safety.
    Kahr is ok, but so far i have a pretty mid road opinion on them. Nothing bad, but nothing great either. Might have to try a few more.

    You might want to consider the Taurus PT 740 slim. It does have a thumb safety and capacity is 6+1 but its size and specially it's width make it great for concealment. The PT 709, which is 9mm, is 7+1.

    The sig p250 is a very nice gun. Its anywhere around $900. Its double action. You can buy a new frame so that the gun is either the compact or full size gun. I have one in 9mm and have put nearly 1000 rounds including reloads through it with absolutely no problems.

    I think you will be sick when I tell you that I paid 300 for my 250c 9mm.

    Haha well mine was a christmas gift so I didnt pay that but its still kinda outrageous that prices can change so quick just because something is considered new.

    Oh I see, something called an XD and another something called a Shield. Why group these guns with a high quality piece of mastery that oozes with goodness?

    I would so like you to BUY my P239 TT SAS Dak trigger model !! :) It's a lovely gun with TruGlo TFO sights, but it is heavier ( at about 2 lbs loaded), than these little pistols aforementioned. TruGlo's on my P-6, too . Luv 'em !

    Kahr cm40

    I purposefully know nothing about and pay little to no attention to guns with no external safety, so that quite literally leaves the Kahr as the only I could suggest.
